Jessica Simpson: 'I don't have anything to prove'

If you haven’t tuned in to “The Price of Beauty” on VH1, Jessica Simpson’s Marie Claire photo shoot, for the magazine’s May issue, will give you an illustrative synopsis.

Simpson will be featured on the cover of the magazine with air-dried hair, no makeup and no retouching.

"I don't have anything to prove anymore,” she told Marie Claire. “What other people think of me is not my business."

And while the Internet is abuzz with people praising her for the shoot, others are having a hard time believing there was no makeup or retouching involved.

Last year, Kim Kardashian appeared on the un-retouched cover of Life & Style in a bikini beside the quote, “I have cellulite, so what!”

“This is the real me,” Kardashian told Life & Style. “I love my body. You should love yours, too.”

About seven months later, the reality TV star underwent a “makeunder” for a Glamour magazine photo shoot, but wasn’t sans makeup, entirely.

Will the au naturel cover trend stick?

What do you think of Simpson’s natural look?

    Ok she's a nice looking young lady, but without me being there to see the pictures taken and to see that there were no photo touch ups being done..I just don't believe any magazine prints untouched photos..

    I used to think Jessica was just another dumb blonde, but after listening to her talk [for the first time] about this project and later on David Letterman, I realized that I was completely wrong. She is a very intelligent, sensitive, and beautiful young woman, with or without makeup!

    Several of those posting here suggest that women in general should not wear makeup (harms the skin, looks fake, etc.) While i'm not a fan of heavy makeup on women, i think that on most women, SOME make up, properly and sparingly applied is needed.

    Face it. We're used to seeing women made up. If you were to remove all makeup from all women overnight, it would be a pretty boring sight. All women need makeup to make their good features look better, and to hide their bad features. Not all women are born beautiful and stay beautiful all their lives. They need makeup. But it must be used sparingly and it must be applied correctly.

    she had no talent, now she has no make-up. What's next, no clothes? Probably! She's just bored and needs some attention I guess. I wish she would stop shaving her legs, plucking her eyebrows or shaving her armpits. Now that's takes balls! But I'm sure she'll never do that, cause she's a fraud. A bored fraud. Later.

    For non-believers: She braided her hair, then let it air dry to get the curly look.

    She is an attractive woman who has a "woman's figure" I am so tired of models who have the body of a pre-teen being displayed as the perfect woman. Just like men have different body types so do we women. The Fact that fashion designers seem to design just for the "model" body is an example that they can't handle "Real Women". For a size 14 model to be considered Plus sized shows the dichotomy in fashion.

    Also our skin needs of be natural in order it to breath, I am a woman of nearly 60 and because of the fact that I rarely ware make up I have the skin of a forty plus woman.

    While Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson still look good without airbrushing and makeup, not all women do. This "love your body" thing can easily be taken to an extreme, too. I for one am sick and tired of obese women referring to themselves as "curvy". If you're built like the Michelin Man, and your waist isn't noticeably slimmer than your hips and bust, you're just fat, and you need to do some sit-ups.

    They obviously have to put make up on her for the cover of a magazine... she has a natural look to her, but they have to retouch and put at least a little make up on because, seriously, it is a Marie Claire magainze, and it is the front cover.. but she looks beautiful with or without makeup. The second photo looks more natural.. and even if she does have on a little makeup, who cares? Our society has come to the point where "natural" to most of us means "Made up to look natural".. even if Jess isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, she is beautiful with any look! At least she has it in her to be put on the cover of a magazine looking completely different from her every day self! A lot of women can't say the same..

  53. MsGoodStuff

    Every time a celebrity supposedly has "no makeup" on, in fact, they do have just a little. A little bit of undereye makeup to cover up any hint of dark circles makes a person look "natural". What they mean by no makeup is that they are not applying the base makeup to the entire face. The base makeup gives a "one color" look to the entire face, and provides a base for the blush and bronzer to cling to, for industry standards in film and on the stage.
    She's beautiful, but she is proving something. She wants to prove to the public that she is a natural beauty, and she is. The fact that she made a fool of herself in her reality series, when she was with her first husband, will never be erased. She's not smart, she's just pretty, and pretty is a good thing, too.

    Jessica is a beautiful young woman. When she appeared on Letterman a few weeks back, she looked fabulous. Jessica basically shrugged her shoulders at those naysayers tsk tsking about those few pounds she put on last year.

    How does this help women's body image? She looks great with no make-up! The reason women feel compelled to wear make-up is to look as good as Jessica Simpson does without make-up.

    To better help women's body image, would it not be better to put only an average woman (without make-up) on the cover, as opposed to an extraordinarily beautiful one without make-up?

    More Hollywood, Modeling and Music Industry "women" should follow suit. Young women all over this country and abroad should be shown that "REAL" women are the stars... not their "touched up" dopplegangers.

    As smart as women are, smarter then their male counterparts, many women still measure their beauty based on men's perceptions, and not their own.

    Whether she has a little make up on or not, this look is 10x better than her usual look. I'm wondering what has driven her to put on the heavy makeup for all these years.
    Honestly, this is true of all women – less is always more.

    GO BACK AND READ YOUR STATEMENT ABOUT USING MAKE-UP TO LOOK "MORE NATURAL" AND LOOK UP THE WORD NATURAL IN THE DICTIONARY. NATURAL IS LIKE A NEW BORN BABY.
    NO MAKE-UP, NO SILICANE BOOBS, NO BUTT INPLANTS, TUMMY TUCKS, NO BOTOX INJECTIONS ETC.
    I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF THE WORD NATURAL.

    C'mon, why do they say she wears no wake up on the cover, that's baloney. Mandi and others who pointed that out are right. She has her eye makeup, and her face is all made up just with more natural colors. She also has either spray tan (which is as effective as makeup) or the picture has been colored (retouched). I agree that the second picture is natural but she looks much worse. The shape of her eyes is different (although she tried to cover it with flying hair). I'm not saying she is not pretty but there is no point lying when it is obvious the magazine is lying if they claim her picture on the cover shows her without makeup.

    As many if not most of the previous posters have stated, Jessica is incredible looking as she is ; no makeup necessary. Which is how I also feel about most women in my life or that I meet on the street.

    This whole comparison 'thing' can be charged to the 'media' including this web site for propagating such BS propaganda as relates to what is most important in life.

    To Don Elliott, Dianne, all the rest of the haters-

    You guys read my first comment where all I did was question whether or not she was really wearing makeup. You can disagree, but you're wrong. She is wearing makeup in both photos. I didn't say her LASHES were dark, I said her lash LINE was dark. Her actual skin. So if the skin of her bottom eye is naturally black and only goes halfway across... then she may want to see a doctor. The makeup she's wearing is very minimal, yes. And I even stated there was NOTHING WRONG with that. In fact, in the rest of my comments, I go on to blame the MAGAZINE for making the claim that she's not wearing any makeup. They should have said nothing and let her beauty speak for itself. IF you had read on, you would've seen that I praised her for her beauty time and time again (with or without makeup). So... what we have here is you guys attacking me and saying negative things about me based on nothing. Gee... if I weren't such a "pinhead," I would think you had all done the exact thing you were criticzing me for doing. Interesting.

    Good for her! It's about time natural beauty comes to the forefront and take center stage. All living creatures are beautiful in their own unique way. If every living creature has to meet the same required level of beauty (whether male, female, or other species), then this world we live in would be like a factory (producing a similar line of looks). We should all embrace the visible and invisible beauties that each one of us possess. With this in mind, maybe world peace can be achieved someday.

    The cover shot isn't very good, it's an awkward smile and her hair frames her face all wrong, though it's a look she's had many times before. And she's wearing a little makeup there, there seems to be a little eyeliner and blush and gloss, so the cover just looks amateurish trying to be half of one thing and half another. BUT, that second shot is stunning, very natural, no eyeliner, no forced smile, the hair is tussled and braided and off the face, the eyes are bright and intense, that is easily the best shot of her I've ever seen, and it's clearly not the normal hollywood mountain of makeup. In fact, that shot is so good, if it didn't have her mole and cleft chin, I wouldn't believe I was looking at Jessica Simpson.

    I think it's great she's posing naturally. All the filthy rich women in this country spend thousands on makeup, hairdos and plastic surgery in order to look way more "perfect" than they actually are, making real woman feel bad. I hope she does more posing in a natural state – truth is always better than lies and we get so many lies from the elite class, when they do something like this, it's a breath of fresh air. Without makeup, she looks the way I would expect her to look – pretty, though not very pretty, and certainly not beautiful. At that, I'll bet she looks better than most wealthy women would look under the same conditions.

    Okay, yes, she looks great w/ little-to-no makeup. However... I'm just gonna say it... the majority of women do NOT have the same natural beauty she does, and we apply makeup trying to look how Jessica does WITHOUT it. She's insanely beautiful, just like Jessica Alba, Biel, etc. That's mostly how she has the career she does. It's not like her music would have made her a pop star... look what Susan Boyle had to do to get her career. She's all natural, why aren't the people commenting on here referencing her natural beauty as an example that women are much more attractive un-made-up? Oh, because women like Jessica Simpson are the exception, not the rule. I think the men on here would really regret it if all women really stopped using make-up and styling their hair.

    I can get my hair to fall like that – I have long wavy curls too. It just takes a lot of running your fingers through your hair as it dries. And my daughter has those thick eyelashes that look like makeup. I'd hate to be the kind of person that doesn't believe in anything anymore. Give her a break. She looks great – better than she has in years.

    She is trying so hard to make us believe that she doesn't care about what people think about her that it leads me to believe that she's got insecurity issues. Otherwise, why try so hard? If you really don't care then don't bother making tv shows and coming out in magazines talking about it, just do it! She just wants publicity, that's all. Doesn't she realize that it was the cameras that destroyed her marriage? Why keep it going? Get out of the spotlight if you don't care what people think about you. If I pay for a magazine I better see someone who is really trying to look good, not someone trying to prove a point which makes no sense whatsoever.

    A failing singing career. A ignoramous stint in Tibet and a show that failed to acquire any ratings. Show skin! That's the last ditch effort to fill up a bank account. She is NOT a role model, simply a glorified BIMBO. And to the poor Asian woman whose singing career ended because of chemical abuse on her face (she wanted a whiter face), our American BIMBO taps her on the shoulder and says, "it's ok. Everything will be ok." (paraphrasing). It's no wonder the world looks at American women as loose, stupid and worthless. Palen in one corner glaringly lacking in political know how and Jessica at the other end, a complete embarrassment. MONEY does not equate success. Just ask any drug lord or high class call girl.

    “What other people think of me is not my business."
    Um...aren't you in the entertainment business Jessica? Modeling on the cover of fashion magazines IS absolutely your business. Starring in glamorous movies & television shows IS your business. Like it or not what people think of you IS your ONLY business. This reminds me of when Charles Barkley exclaimed "I am not a role model". Well, um, yes you are whether or not you like it.

    That being said, I think Jessica looks MUCH better without the usual overdone "trailer-trash" makeup job she usually sports.

    I think she looks beautiful sans makeup. There are a huge number of women in this world who spend 1/2 their lives making themselves up when they don't need it. Granted there are some who benefit from makeup, but like my wife, most don't need it. Several months after my wife and I met I saw her without her makeup(much to her initial chagrin), and I fell in love with her all over again...and she hasn't worn any since. Thanks to great genetics, she probably never will again.

    I am 37 years old and have never in my life worn foundation or eyeliner and rarely do I wear lipstick or eyeshadow. I've never colored or straightened my naturally curly hair. I will never wear colored contacts or fake nails. I spend 5 to 10 minutes on my hair in the morning. All I wear is a little powder on my face and mascara. Guess what? My fiance has told me I am the most beautiful woman he has ever met. Too much fakery = ugliness. Not only that, it's hard to tell what the true woman looks like.

    The second picture has been color graded; it has a green tone to the image. Compare the skin tones. People don't have matching green faces, hair and cardigans .. unless they are in an 80s goth tribute band maybe.

    I think Jessica is beautiful and i think people who are complaining about whether or not she has make up on are missing the point. Her cover photo is very natural and unphotoshopped. She's tired of women having to live up to the standards that the industry has created causing women to have low self esteem. So many woman invest in plastic surgeons and tanning salons and weight loss gimmicks over and over again. Jess is simply saying that you're beautiful in your own skin. It doesnt matter how big you are, how tan you are, how young you look... if u feel beautiful in your own skin then that comes out in your personality. It doesnt matter how attractive someone is on the outside, if they dont like themselves on the inside then it doesnt really matter.

    My hair air dries similar to that – my sister and my daughter's hair does as well. If you have natural wave and relatively thick hair, you can get away with air drying and no styling. (Which is very convenient when you're not a morning person!) I can completely believe that Jessica's hair is air dried in the photos, because I do the same every day.

    Unfortunately my eyelashes are so light that I have to wear mascara even when I'm not wearing any other makeup, or else you wouldn't even be able to tell that I have eyelashes. Sigh.

But it is not the case. If more women in the limelight would have this confidence, take this stance it really would help young women and older women feel more confident in their own skin. All you see in magazines, newspapers, commercials etc, is very thin, very made up women, and that is the "example" we as a society have set up for ourselves and our children. Shame on us all.

    It's a little like splitting hairs to debate over whether or not she's wearing makeup in the photo. She's good looking to begin with; she's not risking anything. Actually, it's a little insulting for someone who is just straight-up, naturaully attractive to say "I don't care what people think of me." That's like someone who makes $1,000,000 per year saying "I'll drop my salary all the way down to $750,000. I can live like a poor person, too." Marie Claire, show some pictures of ugly people who do really good things for others, and have the balls to call them beautiful. It's a crock to have the "people are beautiful without make-up or retouching" movement when the people in question are already physically attractive. I have a sneaky suspiscion that if she were hideous without makeup, the number of positive comments about her would be much lower.
    Sorry if this sounds like bashing, but I'm quite an ugly person and this article feels a bit pretentious. I can't believe that Jessica Simpson knows what it's like to be unattractive.

    Anyway I never cared for her, her "music" or acting but I think it is great that she is making a stand for herself and resisting the non-realistic standards we have for beauty today.

    finally woman who may hold some sway over the young women in America are demonstrating that natural is beautiful. I hope the trend continues. I don't tend to pay much attention to models, as I consider the look fake and much prefer looking at and dealing with people as they are. And while I. of course, interact with highly competent, highly made up women everyday at work, and that choice is theirs, when it come to those I think look good (and admittedly looks are less important than competence in my job), I greatly prefer little or no make up, despite the self perceived 'flaws' that give character and uniqueness to a person's look.

    My absolutely beautiful 4 year old niece lost her first tooth just days ago. You could see she was glowing with pride in the fact she was getting to be a big girl and get her big girl teeth in. You couldnt hold her down she was floating. The next day after school, she came crying home because some girl at her school called her ugly because her tooth was missing. Ladies and Gentlemen, this concept of beauty is starting as early as 4 years old. Isnt it about time we stopped putting this kind of pressure one each other? My niece should be happy being who she is, and she shouldnt have to worry about what she looks like. Jessica Simpson is doing what makes her feel good. Putting on makeup makes some girls feel good. I know my best friend doesnt leave the house without putting on makeup. I on the other hand just put on mascara and lipgloss and I am good to go. The concept of beauty shouldnt be in one's appearance. But in one's actions and personality.

    I know Jessica Simpson is a very good looking woman, but I didn't know she's way MORE better looking without makeup and all that garbage women put on their face. This is what I call natural beauty! Hollywood is full of sweet painted ladies, they only look good with makeup on, remove their warpaint, an ordinary woman with children looks better than those Hollywood Actress.

    In response to the post from bitbit, I did go to the MC Web site, and I think you are right about the cover not being in the same photo group. But the funny thing is, you can clearly see on one of those higher-res "natural" shots that the shadows have been cleaned up with Photoshop. So much for ethics in the beauty mag biz.

    She's far from "natural," since she has bleached hair, veneered or capped teeth, probably enhanced boobs, carefully shaped eyebrows, and definitely some lip filler going on there. She starts out "improved" even before the other stuff. But I'll believe the no makeup thing for these shots. For the people obsessing over whether her hair is air-dried, the mag isn't claiming she didn't use hair product, and you can get that effect with salt water spray and some styling lotion. But as for no "retouching": no way. I'll accept that she wasn't photoshopped to the usual dgree, but I can't believe that they didn't at least do some digital softening and correction of lighting, etc. Especially on that brightly lit cover shot.

    She's not stupid – she's making huge deposits to her bank account every day for playing roles and selling shoes and singing songs you hate.

No woman has ever rendered herself "hot" or "hotter" by smearing stuff on her face. What a waste of our precious time on earth!

    Oh and P.s. The whole reason she is doing this show (publicity stunt) is because she can not act, sing, or dance and she needs to get back into the public image, so let's do what everyone's doing.... A Reality Show...... That will get me back into the spot lite. People should realize once you've had your 15/30 min of fame, move on and do something else with your life. Your washed up in the Buiz!

    If she is the representation of Beauty as many posters post- Then I am a Goddess. I wear hardly any make-up and I had once modeled. So, with out all the glam, she is someone that would walk past you and would not even have a second head turned back to look at her again. She is a classic poor girl next door. Most people are Star gazzed.

    I think she looks average. I will admit that I could be biased on account of me having seen her shows and thus knowing she is dumb, so do not attack me. Maybe her being dumb and stupid makes her less attractive to me but that is just an opinion. I know she used to be huge fat for awhile but that does not impact my opinion. I would say, with my professional opinion that she is ok.

    Kudos to Jessica for her self-confidence and beauty. Even if she's not 100% without make-up she's pretty close. Jamie Lee Curtis was one of the first Hollywood stars to embrace her naturale self and appear on a cover sans make up and sent a wonderful message to women everywhere. Make-up, botox, plastic surgery, etc is nothing without inner beauty and confidence with one's self.

    Air-dried–her hair could be air dried but that doesnt mean it wasnt curled or styled. Some women actually do have dark lower lashes-some even have eyeliner tattooed. I think she looks great-of course they are going to "style" her hair. I think what makes it natural is that it is minimal work done. Im sure they did face powder or other minimal touches because the picture still has to look like a photo shoot-not a snapshot off my camera-good lighting, no oily forehead shining, etc. I think it is brave for anyone to do it because they know they will be judged....like some of the people commenting. Even positive comments are still judgements....

    Jessica Simpson: 'I don't have anything to prove'

    If she didn't have anything to prove she would not have gone this far to prove she has nothing to prove. There has been pictures of her in the tabloids while she was out and those are less than appealing like the picture appearing now. I have met her before she was big, she played at a bar I bartended at; her skin is less than perfect and far from it. TO be Natural is to show the scars and skin damage from the sun in it's natural state.

    That's my 2 cents.

    Good for Jessica! She gets an "A" for effort.

    First of all, MAKEUP is highly overrated.

    The industry does NOT care about women's health. It's a BILLION dollar business. Every make-up and beauty product is DESIGN and CREATED for the almighty DOLLAR!!! Bottom line. They don't care if their product works, all they care about is that it sells!!

    Women need to STOP buying all the garbage they keep putting on their faces to STOP God's aging process. Majority of the products are UNHEALTHY for you to begin with anyways, READ THE LABLE lades!!

    It does not matter if you pay $5.00 or $500.00 an ounce it will NOT prevent you from aging. I don't understand WHY women think it does.

    most of us can be made to look a lot better with a nice camera angle and the right lighting. and this "totally natural photo" was probably the best of hundreds taken to get this shot.

    That said – I think that seeing her in person with some life and animation in her face would probably be quite different from both her airbrushed photos and this advantageous one.

    @ Mandi...I'm not the magazine editor. It wasn't my decision to use that photo. I would have made the same decision as the editor did, though. You want to get people to buy the mag, so you don't put the make-up free pic on the cover. Regardless, I think the reason she's going with a more natural look is because Adam Lambert stole her make-up kit.
